Moxie Fab World - Itty Bitty Card Challenge #2


Today i am sharing another Itty Bitty card set for Moxie Fab Worlds Itty Bitty Card Challenge. This set is for the boys and they are tiny!!! I used PTI's Truckin It die and stamp set.

I made a fold in my cardstock and placed just the tops of the dies over the fold. Ran it through the die cutting machine a couple times. Next i used some valentine paper with some blue it and die cut the trucks out of it.

I stamped each truck outline on the pattern paper. I stamped little hey buddy and beep beep sentiments on two of the trucks. I added a little red and white glitter glue to the head and tail lights. Last adhere the little pattern paper trucks to the mini cards.

These are really tiny, but cute!! I've been looking at all my dies to see what could make awesome little mini cards. I have 2 more to share later this week!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Moxie Fab's Itty Bitty Card Challenge


So i have a little mini card set today for Moxie Fab's Itty Bitty Card Challenge. I actually have several mini cards that i will be sharing over the next week, i kept getting ideas that i had to try out! I really like mini cards, but i don;t have any mini envelopes so i don;t make them that often.

I made each of the little cards from small dies, first make a fold in some cardstock and placing the top of the die just off of the fold. You have to run the die through the machine a few times.

Then i die cut the same shapes from some burlap fabric. I added a tiny heart and pink bakers twine to each shape before adhering them to there matching cards.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back in a couple days with another mini card set .... for boys!

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop


Today is Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop! The challenge this morning is to make a card with a black background.

I decided to make it a valentine card and i am also entering it in Moxie Fab's Window Challenge. This card came to me as i was falling a sleep one night.

I started with my cardbase and a heart die. I die cut the heart multiple times across the card (keep the bottom part that is now not attached). Next i adhered a piece of transparency to the top part of cardbase.

Then i used a couple heart stamps to stamp on the transparency. I placed the bottom cardbase piece on the transparency, lining it up with the inside or back of the cardbase. DON'T adhere this bottom piece yet, just use it a s a guide as you stamp the hearts in the heart spaces made from the die.

Next stamp and emboss your sentiment on the bottom piece. I went with gold and i also added some gold pearl like embellishments randomly across the hearts. Once your sentiment is embossed you can adhere the bottom piece to the transparency. Last trim the transparency and round two of the corners. Oh and i added a piece of white cardstock to the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Paper Crafts January Gallery Challenge


It's been awhile, i know since posting. I went a week with out my computer and last week classes started, its going to be a busy semester!!

Today i am sharing a card that i am submitting to Paper Crafts January Gallery Challenge. I finished this a few days ago and though i had a few days still to get it on the blog, but i just found out a little bit ago that the deadline is tonight!

The challenge is a milestone birthday card. For my card i die cut the numbers from white cardstock. I traced the numbers on my cardbase, leaving open a little bit of the zero.

Next i added s squiggle to the zero with a stamp. I also inked up and stamped a pen, then with soft stone ink, i stamped some ink splats.

Last i printed out my sentiment from my computer, trimmed it and adhered it to my cardbase.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

CAS-ual Friday: Thank You Challenge


So my computer is currently at my brothers getting its hard drive wiped! Yep something out of the blue yesterday morning just decided not to work! It froze, i shut it down, it started back up or at least to the point where Windows should open... nothing!  So i'll be using my mom's computer for the rest of the week while he works on it.

And i have to say i miss my computer, i have a whole list of bookmarks that i look at everyday and i can't remember them all!! I also miss having my little pin it button! My mom doesn't like change so i'm hesitant to down load the pin button, it might be too much for her!!! lol

I also had to use the photo editing program that comes with her computer. Its alright, but i like the program i use better!!! But i can deal with it until my computer is back up and running.

Its been awhile since i had time to play with CAS-ual Friday's, but i had to make sure i did before classes start next week and i have no more time!!! lol The challenge this week is to make a thank you card.

This card was really easy, i just made a card from cardstock. Die cut the flowers from some Kraft scraps and adhered them to the cardbase.

Then i die cut the tag, stamped the sentiment. Then i wrapped the twine around the card, added the tag and tied it in a not. To hold the tag in place i used a little pop up dot.

And that's it!! I think i'm going to make up a few more to make a set to giveaway as a gift!

Thanks for stopping by!!
